I have a horizontal pouch from Vaja that was made for the 8800 series. Works great and looks great, that is what I use for more dressy occasions.

LOL I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps the topic should have it's own sub-forum here!

All about the Innocase from Seidioonline! Super thin, and has a good solid feel and grip to it.

It depends on your usage style.

I have a zip-surround, clear-front leather case (Fortte), an open-front thicker-leather surround case (Fortte), a hard-shell armor case (Otterbox), a rubber baby buggy bumper skin (Otterbox) & a clip holster (BoxWave). I use the clip holster most.

Default BB 9000 BOLD Case

I would recommend the Otterbox for the Bold. I got one for my Bold and it will protect your BB. It is alittle bulky but it will protect it real well. This is my third BB and my third Otterbox.

Picked up this OEM Leather Pocket from CrackBerry.com

Fittment is snug at first, but since it is leather, it slowly contours to the phone.

Does this case have you leaving fingerprints and smudges on the screen when trying to get it out? I was thinking about picking one up, but didn't want to have to wipe down the screen every time I reached for the thing.

Yeah thats the only downside, you do get a smudge on the screen where the earpiece speaker is.

Beatness...eh, it may still be worth it to get away from the bulky stock holster that comes with the thing. LOL

Yeah the bulky stock holster does the job but its a PITA. I used to have a OEM silicone skin on my Curve, that worked pretty well too.
